    GARTONE amp.

    Been chasing one of Martin Gartones's amp for a long time...now I've got one I know why.

    Arrived Saturday, as did the start of my gear re-build.

    Small steps, big smiles.....

    Gartone ACE 20.

    Nice stuff Paul !!!
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    The myth :The most disturbing thing about buying a fake Les Paul is how my research after the purchase is received by Forum members ??? 2020

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    So what lurks on the control panel?
    Glad the neighbors can be properly annoyed again.

    Lovely! Is that the same Gartone model that somone brought to the last LPFUK meet-up? Was possibly a pre-production version at that point? That one sounded gorgeous, as you'd expect.

    Enjoy it (loudly).

    I don't recall seeing that amp Jules...too busy supping tea and eating butties....

    It's a work of art Mate, can't tell you how delighted I am with it.

    Hope all's well in the Metropolis?

    Can't remember who brought it. I think it was an early version and Martin had leant it to him to test out and give his opinion of it. Sounded "Ace"!

    Keeping out of the Metropolis, hibernating here in deepest Kent. Might have to go into work one day next week, and possibly a band practice to go to. Otherwise staying put.

    Take care up north,


    Jules

    I wonder if that would have been Rick, Gartone's resident test pilot guitarist? I missed the amp completely, I really do need to pay more attention.

    Glad you're in the Green bits and keeping out of the way somewhat.

    Stay cool Pal.

    Hot damn, that is absolutely beautiful.

    And the amp too!
    As I see it, I serve the beat. Groove is everything.
